Well, this would certainly explain a lot. Researchers from Finland’s University of Turku have discovered phosphorus and fluorine in solid dust particles obtained from the inner core of a comet collected with the COmetary Secondary Ion Mass Analyser (COSIMA).
Why is this important? Because, according to the study, “The finding indicates that all the most important elements necessary for life may have been delivered to the Earth by comets.”
That’s right. All life on Earth may actually be alien in origin.
Also mentioned in the paper published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society is the fact that the dust particles collected found on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko are the first time carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and sulphur (CHNOPS) have all been discovered in a comet.
This is the first time that life-necessary CHNOPS-elements are found in solid cometary matter. Carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and sulphur were reported in previous studies by the COSIMA team from e.g. organic molecules. The discovered phosphorus, or P, is the last one of the CHNOPS-elements. The discovery of P indicates cometary delivery as a potential source of these elements to the young Earth.
CHNOPS represents the six most important elements whose covalent combinations make up 98% of living matter on Earth.
“This result completes the detection of life-necessary CHNOPS elements in solid cometary matter, indicating cometary delivery as a potential source of these elements to the young Earth,” the study states.
“It is possible to seed the required elements with solid cometary matter, that is rich in volatiles. Although, more importantly, the compounds must be reactive and soluble, no matter how they are delivered.”
So… if it does turn out that all life on Earth actually sprung from a comet and is alien in nature, then it might go a long way towards explaining why we are consistently being monitored by UFOs. They’re just keeping an eye on their distant relatives.
